Muscogee Creek Nation

Log Number: MN-00-19-0014-19

The Muscogee Creek Nation will build on lessons learned in a pilot project to expand a professional development program for Native teachers. The program will center on academic growth and the creation of curriculum focused on Muscogee history, traditions, and culture. Twenty teachers will be recruited to participate in collaborative sessions. The goal is to create 100 lessons to be published and distributed throughout the tribal jurisdiction and made available in an online repository. Participating teachers will test the new lessons and offer feedback to adapt and improve the final versions. Lesson plans will address the lack of Native Studies curriculum in Oklahoma and will align with state educational standards. A partnership with the Muscogee (Creek) Nation Council House Museum will facilitate the creation of field trip guides and lessons surrounding objects in the Council House.
